Woods: February 4, 2011 Monster Island Basement – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

February 7, 2011

Friday night’s Woods show at Monster Island was billed as an acoustic duo, but soon evolved into a near full band Woods show. Jeremy and Jarvis were originally scheduled to perform the entire set together, but were ultimately joined by Lucas, and Matt and Alex from Real Estate/Ducktails. The set’s unique nature was further enhanced by the fact that the band performed seven new songs among a 13-song show. Opening with two pieces of new material presented a challenge for the young-ish and packed-in crowd, but after the band began to play in earnest, they received full attention. The crowd was rewarded with a stunning ten-minute “Bend Beyond” (streaming below), which has taken on the role of Woods jam piece during recent sets. The four new songs performed in the middle of the set were quiet minor-chord folk numbers, but thereafter “Born to Lose” (also streaming below), began quietly and developed into a seven minute full band psychedelic jam. The set closed with two familiar numbers, and despite calls for an encore the lateness of the hour required that the band call it a night. Woods will continue with two final shows in their tour with Ducktails, tonight in Philadelphia and Tuesday in Baltimore, before heading to Europe for much of March.

I recorded this set with the Neumann microphone mounted on a pole fifteen feet from the stage, and mixed with a feed from the board. There was some minor hiss in the system and in the PA that is evident during quieter moments, but its not distracting to this overall excellent recording. Enjoy!

Mission of Burma: January 28, 2011 Maxwell’s – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

We’ve followed Mission of Burma, version 2.0, for almost twice as long as the original run of the band in the early 80s. The most consistent element of their live show has always been the ferocity of the performance. The band plays live with the kind of kinetic energy that defines their sound, and provides earth shattering volume to prove the point. The other aspect MOB’s live show is that the setlists are always quite divergent. The Bell House recording posted last night by acidjack is an entirely different show than what we experienced Friday night at Maxwell’s. Now performing live material for what will soon become their fourth post-reunion album, the band is operating on all cylinders. Each of the three stage players offer new songs that rival the quality of their career output and Friday night’s show featured a healthy dose of them. One might expect that the packed house would become impatient with the mid-set big block of new material, but in fact the mixed-age crowd seemed equally enthralled throughout the show. Mission of Burma rewarded them with a lightning-speed foursome of classics in the encore slot that closed with a reverse play of their debut single — “Max Ernst” into “Academy Fight Song” (streaming below). When the band left the stage the cries for “more” lasted for a good ten minutes before the house music came up — one of the most prolonged crowd calls we’ve seen in a while, and well deserved.

I recorded this set in the same location as all of our recordings from this outstanding venue and the sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

The Decemberists: January 26, 2011 Beacon Theatre – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

On the final night of their 3-show run at Beacon Theatre, The Decemberists new album The King Is Dead reached number one on the Billboard album chart. Colin Meloy made one brief bemused reference to this fact at Wednesday night’s show, but this fairly major accomplishment seemed to not have fazed the band. Its a rare album that actually deserves a number one position, but King is truly a remarkable piece of work. While the title would imply a Smiths influence — and there is a definite “Bigmouth Strikes Again” feel to some of the songs — its the REM sound that prevails. In particular “Down By The Water” (streaming below) is very reminiscent of the 12-string minor-chord guitar prominent in such REM classics “The One I Love” and “Driver 8”. At the Beacon, five of the new songs were performed and they shined. Indeed, the beautiful “June Hymn” closed the show. In between, this night also featured the surprise guest appearance of Shara Worden, who reprised her soaring Hazards of Love vocals on “The Wanting Comes In Waves” (also streaming below). The Decemberists tour continues throughout the US in January and February before they head to Europe in March.

I recorded this set with my best mobile rig from a prime seat in 7th row of the center section where the sound quality was truly outstanding. This recording reflects that superb quality. Enjoy!

Shilpa Ray: January 21, 2011 Brooklyn Bowl – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

January 23, 2011

In a venue that sometime can feel like an advertisement for attention deficit disorder, on Friday night Shilpa Ray used her tremendous stage energy to cut through the Brooklyn Bowl distractions to deliver an outstanding set. With Jack White and a sixteen person entourage bowling in one corner, sports fans watching the Knicks on the large screen tv in another corner, and the floor of the venue filled with the persistent din of chatter, the venue did not offer an easy task for the live performers. But it was the night of her CD release party, and Shilpa was not to be denied. As she opened the set with “Beating St. Louis”, her powerful voice cut through the din and demanded attention. The show was propelled by seven straight songs before Shilpa came up for a breath after “Stick It To The Woman”, by which time she had the rapt attention of at least the front half of the crowd. The set consisted of the entire new album — Teenage & Torture was released Tuesday on Knitting Factory Records, with some older material sprinkled in. The encore segment began with a musically perfect cover of Pink Floyd’s The Wall anthem “In The Flesh” (streaming below) and continued with a cover of Red Kross. The show’s closing song was an extended version of “Genie’s Drugs” that ended the night on another high note.

I recorded this set with the hypercard Neumanns on a 14 foot stand from in front of the soundboard and mixed with a well-balanced feed from the board. The mix is 2/3 board, since the audience recording is marred by the high volume of the persistent din of the crowd. Overall, the final result is an excellent recording. Enjoy!

O’Death is back. In March, they will embark on a month-long cross-country tour. After two years of dormancy during which drummer David Rogers-Berry fought cancer, the band is ready to return. O’Death has recorded an entire new album, which will be released in the coming months. For a warmup, O’Death appeared Saturday night at Bell House. The band also discovered that their fan base is still very much intact and as ready as they are for the return. About half of the packed venue joined on the floor for an impromptu dance/mosh pit, as the band worked through an hour long set of their best material. The set also featured three of the new songs played for the first time live. O’Death will return to Brooklyn for a gig on April 15 at a venue to be determined.

We recorded this set with the Neumanns from the elevated area next to the soundboard. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

Dean Wareham has been back playing Galaxie 500 material since late last year — the first show was a stealth event at Rock Shop in August. Sadly, we missed that intimate show, but based on the excellent reviews, vowed to make it to the next leg of the tour. We didn’t attend Music Hall in December but chose instead the intimate and excellent Maxwell’s to experience the Galaxie 500 show. We were rewarded with an outstanding set. Dean’s guitar work has always been superb, but on this night it seemed that every song took on that extra edge in the crescendos. The setlist was similar to the other shows that have been played on this tour — i.e. all the classics were played. We’re streaming “Tugboat” and “Fourth of July” below since both were particularly strong versions. Dean and Britta will continue this excellent tour in Europe throughout February [tour dates].

We recorded this set with the DPA microphones placed at the usual front right corner of the soundboard booth and mixed it with an excellent soundboard feed. The sound quality is superb. Enjoy!

Tom Tom Club: January 12, 2011 Irving Plaza – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

January 14, 2011

[photo from Chris Frantz’s Facebook page]

Its been thirty years since the release of the Tom Tom Club’s first album, but at Irving Plaza last night the years were wiped away by both the crowd and the band. Tom Tom Club performed a tight 80-minute set of their timeless songs and the well-aged crowd danced in a frenzy throughout the evening. From the first beats of “Suboceana” until the final frenzied jam at the conclusion of “Psycho Killer”, Chris’s machine-like drumming and Tina’s unmistakeable bass were prominent in the mix and propelled the band and the fans. The setlist drew liberally from among the band’s entire catalog with highlights too many to list. We’ve streamed “Wordy Rappinghood” below as it was the set closer and was an extended version, and “The Man With The 4-Way Hips”, which was also extended and completely smoked. As a celebration of their 30th anniversary Tom Tom Club will be touring throughout the year and will indeed record some new material. Look for them on the “festival circuit” this summer.

I recorded this set with the four microphone rig from the middle of the floor at Irving Plaza, with the microphones raised to about 12 feet. The sound quality in the venue was superbly rich and clear, and the quality of this recording is as a result quite outstanding. Enjoy!

The War On Drugs: January 8, 2011 Bowery Ballroom – Flac and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Song

January 14, 2011
By


[photos for nyctaper by David Andrako]

We’ve seen The War On Drugs twice recently and each time they were mighty impressive. In August at Knitting Factory, their set was far superior to the headlining Black Mountain, as their aggressive performance showed more psych-rock muscle than their contemporaries. On Saturday night at Bowery opening for Sharon Van Etten, the mood and setting required a more refined approach. Whether intentional or due to the excellent clarity of the room mix at Bowery, The War On Drugs delivered a stunning forty minute set that was less Zep-influenced and more Dylan and The Band-sounding. The opening song “Arms Like Boulders” (streaming below) set the tone with a jangly lyric-laden Blonde On Blonde-ish melodic romp that would sustain for the entire set. The band is currently working on a full length album due for release later this year and several of those songs were featured, along with tracks from the 2010 Future Weather EP, and their debut album Wagonwheel Blues on Secretly Canadian Records. The War On Drugs will perform again in NYC on April 3 at Webster Hall (opening for Destroyer).

We recorded this set with the same rig and location at the SVE set, and the sound quality is outstanding. Enjoy!

Yellow Ostrich: January 4, 2011 Mercury Lounge – FLAC and MP3 Downloads + Streaming Songs

January 6, 2011
By


[Photos by the always excellent David Andrako]

This is my first recording of 2011, and I am pleased to say that Yellow Ostrich is officially my first great find for the year. I first heard of the band when they appeared on the bill for our friends at FREEWilliamsburg‘s CMJ show, and although I missed that show, Yellow Ostrich was highest on the list of bands I needed to see. After a somewhat uneven slate of opening acts, vocalist/guitarist Alex Schaaf and drummer Michael Tapper took the stage to a packed Mercury Lounge. Schaaf is a gifted vocalist with a sweet and somewhat nasal voice; in his delivery I hear a bit of a young Jeff Mangum of Neutral Milk Hotel. The set opener, “Whale” was a whimsical and instantly catchy treat that started things off strong (if you hear a slight discontinuity in the track, it is because we removed a few seconds of computer glitch). But other than “Whale,” I actually preferred some of the band’s slightly less poppy, more angular numbers – the older song “Fog”, in particular, and the set’s closer, “Mary.” Most of the set focused on the band’s latest record, The Mistress, which is available, along with all of the band’s catalog, on their bandcamp page on a “pay what you will” basis, and can be pre-ordered on vinyl from Afternoon Records here. We expect more great things from this young band in 2011, and their year has already had a fantastic beginning, with them landing the coveted Pianos Thursday night residency for February.

Catch Yellow Ostrich at Shea Stadium on January 15, or February 3, 10, 17 or 24 at Pianos.

I recorded this set with an excellent soundboard feed from the Mercury Lounge engineers and the Schoeps microphones. The sound is outstanding. Thanks to Kevin for his consistently strong work behind the board.
